Easy Homemade Tomato Soup

Emma is learning to cook.
She loves to browse through recipe books...
especially her own!

"Christmas Fairy Cooking"
was the first cookbook she ever received.
She has thoroughly enjoyed kitchen-testing some of the
user-friendly recipes within it ~
with great results.

Now we have entered the zone of "real" cooking.
A sweet friend recently
gave her a "regular" cookbook.
She immediately began searching for something
to whip up in the kitchen.

One of the first things we tried was this recipe.
It's quick and easy!
Great for a last-minute lunch.
Just serve up with grilled cheese and you are set!

MMmm! LOVE tomato soup!!! Happy cooking!

Camille said...

Thanks Jenn! This one is great 'cuz it's almost as easy as the canned stuff, and so much better for you! If you want to make it creamy you could add in some cream at the end of the cooking time...I haven't tried it, but the recipe said you could. :)
